Games Workshop staff to all benefit from $6.7 million bonus

Tabletop gaming institution expects profits to nearly double this year

Games Workshop staff to all benefit from $6.7 million bonus

All 1,700 members of staff at Games Workshop will receive part of a $6.7 million (£5 million) bonus.

The Nottingham-based tabletop wargames company expects to report an annual pre-tax profit of at least $99 million, up from last year's $51.4m.

Hammer time

Revenue was primarily driven by online sales and the growing popularity of the Warhammer line of tabletop games, boosted by $13.4 million in licensing royalties.

Shares have increased in value by almost 150 per cent over the last 12 months, as Games Workshop recovers from a difficult period of struggling sales.

The refresh of their core games aided this recovery and the company has benefitted from the struggling pound, as 75 per cent of its revenues come from overseas.

In recognition of their contribution, employees will be seeing a direct benefit to Games Workshop’s success through a share of the company-wide bonus.
